I’m Dr. Bob and for just a Mentoring Minute I want you to know that, as I look ahead, I am determined to make some excellent, deliberate choices concerning the path of my life. I understand the value in doing so. These excellent choices will help me to be the winner and champion for Jesus that He intends I become. Therefore, I am determined that the foundations of my choices will be willful acts of loving obedience and truth. I will refuse to entertain anything else. 1 John 3:18 ( NKJV) says, “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.” I urge you to take this advice to heart. Loving in deed and truth is infinitely more powerful than simply manufacturing a few well-sounding words. Let your life be filled with loving acts that reflect the truths you learned from God. Doing so will elevate you above whatever life holds. More importantly, what you do throughout the course of your life will be well-pleasing to God. Let loving in deed and truth become the deciding factor in every decision you make, and every action you take. If you will, as you walk with the Lord into your future, you will find your willful choices to have loved in deed and truth were the only right choices. I’m Dr. Bob.
